Green virtual tours in Lombardy

The stunning landscapes of Lombardy are bathed in warm sunshine. Until we can enjoy them in person again and breathe in the fresh, balmy spring air, why not take a little tour through the parks and gardens of the area?

 

You can satisfy your curiosity and give your eyes a treat, by taking a look at the pages dedicated to the various green spaces in the area, which have been updated with virtual tours and in-depth information. Make sure you're sitting comfortably and get ready to go.

 

Villa Carlotta on Lake Como 

The virtual tour of Villa Carlotta starts in the atrium, which opens its doors onto one of the most picturesque views of Lake Como. Spring is in full bloom in these magical places. Why not admire its beautiful colours with a panoramic view of the delights of the "house of fine arts"? This was the name given to it by Giovanni Battista Sommariva, who bought Villa Carlotta from the Clerici family in 1801. Through a detailed presentation on the website you can discover the sculptures, frescos, paintings and collectibles on display in the bright, airy rooms of this building. To find out more, visit the Villa Carlotta pages on Facebook and Instagram.

 

Virtual walk around the Campo dei Fiori Park

A virtual excursion through the breathtaking Varese landscapes is an unmissable choice from the various 360° tours available online. For example, nature lovers can enjoy a visit to the Campo dei Fiori Park: on the website you will be able to admire the beautiful paths and mountains, which are stunning even through a computer screen.

 

A documentary on the Sacri Monti 

"Sacri Monti di Piemonte e Lombardia", the documentary series on the holy mountains of Lombardy and Piedmont, will be broadcast from 18th April on TV2000, offering a closer look at this world heritage site. A true spiritual journey that starts with the Sacro Monte di Varallo and moves on to Crea, Orta, Varese, Oropa, Ossuccio, Ghiffa, Domodossola and Belmonte, now linked by the Devoto Cammino route. Historians and archaeologists, religious believers and art experts, botanists and park rangers will be your guides.
